Port Townsend

Fort Worden

Located along Admiralty Inlet, this 433-acre stretch of land once served as an active army installation and then a juvenile detention facility before opening to the public as a park in 1973. There is still evidence of the park’s military roots with abandoned bunkers and a Coast Artillery Museum, but it’s the beaches and bluffs that draw day trippers and kayakers to this Olympic Peninsula park. Fort Worden may also look familiar to film buffs – the 1982 movie, An Officer and a Gentleman was filmed here.
